Recovery through the Arts

What does recovery look like for you?

Recovery is such an individual thing. Whether it’s through nature, arts or sports we can find a way that suits us. Here is just one example of the arts produced in recovery.

Poetry

You think I’m happy but all you see,
Is the mask I wear on the outside of me.
You see the smile and her the laugh, but you don’t see the tears that could fill my bath.
Yet when I’m honest and say I feel bad,
When I say I’m angry or that I’m sad.
Some of you don’t get it and some just look away,
Because Vonny my dear isn’t acting herself no not today.
Mental health isn’t understood for silent tears are cried,
But you see these scars upon my skin they tell you I survived.
These are my battle scars and the words I say are true,
This life may have chopped me down but yes my friend I grew!
